I'm using fc3 and have a Lacie d2 usb2 harddrive. When I installed fedora (yesterday) things were fine, i just plugged the frive in, got an icon on my desktop and could browse files and access through /media/usbhardrive (or something quite similar). Then I clicked the (!) icon and was uptodate but when I rebooted with my new kernel I had no luck anymore, usb hardrive was unreachable!
when connecting dmesg starts by saying
USB Mass Storage support registered.
usb-storage: device found at 5
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
Vendor: Maxtor 7 Model: Y250P0 Rev: YAR4
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 04
then it gets all bad
usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-1: scsi_eh_0 timed out on ep0in
usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -110
scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery: host 0 channel 0 id 0 lun 0
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to offline device
sda : READ CAPACITY failed.
sda : status=0, message=00, host=0, driver=04
sda : sense not available.
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 5
usb-storage: device scan complete
Then this whoule thing loops again and again.... this doesn't happen with the freshly installed fc3, but only after update, and I tried mounting running an old kernel on another machine and it works so something happens when I update. When trying to mount in a normal way I realised that /dev/sda did not exist, but that worked with the old kernel... argh
my current installation is
Linux misty 2.6.10-1.766_FC3 #1 Wed Feb 9 23:06:42 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
what is going on here? Should I reinstall an earlier kernel? Please help me, I'm lost...
